Circa 1926 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost Piccadilly Roadster.  The R-R Ghost cars did not have front brakes.

The Springfield Ghost had brakes after 24.....if memory serves me, many were retro fitted. The car appears to be a 23 or 24 Pic roadster.

Charlie Chaplin was not all that tall. Around 5 ft. 4 in. , yet he seems to sit quite high in this Rolls ?

Booster seat or custom seat cushion?  I was just looking at some pictures.  It appears to me that his body was more or less regular length and most of his lack of height was in his legs.  In that case he would not look short when sitting down.

The R-R is a USA made car in Springfield, MA.  The early Ghosts produced in Springfield were right hand drive.
